What is happening to me these days? Why I feel like missing someone all the time? Why my heartbeat is sounding like a motor engine, on seeing someone special? Why do all the time I keep checking my phone for someone’s WhatsApp or FB status? I used to be known as a party freak, but since from the last couple of day, I am loving staying alone all time? Every single message on my phone makes me skip my heartbeat? Is this something we call love? Oh My God! Am I really in love?

Reminds me of King Khan’s (SRK) Darr movie scene – walking on the edge of the top floor with a flower in his hand; with every petal, he questions himself – “Kiran Loves Me. Kiran Loves me Not.” You don’t need to be that crazy. Neither you need to visit a fortune-teller, nor you need to rely on a parrot’s judgment, who will pull out a card about your future. Should you see any of the following symptoms, you are already in love my friend. Congratulations.

Sleep? No Thanks!

“And tonight, i”ll fall asleep with you in my heart.”

Why would you be possibly putting yourself to sleep? The hours you sleep are the hours, I now use for dreaming about her. All day all night, I think of that special person. I do not need an alarm now to wake me up. Now I do know the answer to the most asked question – “why people in love don’t get any sleep.” I am experiencing the sentiments by myself and now as I have found someone with whom I want to spend most of my time, sleeping seems a waste of time to me. It is medically proved now that being in love is more like taking a drug. Anyone who is in love, his/her dopamine levels are bound to be highly active.

Smile to The World

“I find myself smiling whenever I think of you.”

Suddenly you are smiling to yourself and that too without any reason. You simply cannot help yourself with it. The jaws go into spasm end of the day because the corners of the mouth are constantly pulled up below the ears. Whether your special one is around you or not, you smile and blush secretly and most of the time your brain is occupied with a flashback of a good time spent with your partner. Medically, at the lover’s brain produces twice as much fenyletylamin. It is a kind of natural amphetamine that makes you happy. The same substance found actually in chocolate. So eat you beret extra piece, once the infatuation fades.

Checking Facebook and Reading Old Text Message

Are you now checking your facebook and other social media profiles all the time? Might be you are expecting a photo of your sweetheart that you are tagged in. You will be more into reading your lovers’ old text and chat message. When you are head over heels in love, you will know everything about your sweetheart. What does he/she likes? What he/she was doing before you met her/him? The more you know about him/her, the closer you feel attached to him/her. And, the biggest thing is – you won’t find anything stupid in it.

You Eat Nothing

You cannot squeeze a bite down, even if you have nothing eaten since a few couple of days. All your favorite foods could stand in front of you, and you still would not want to sink your teeth into some of it. Again, the hormones in. When you are in love, the amount of the hormone cortisol in the blood increased, and it can cause you to lose your appetite. If you are feeling so, O Guru! You are in love.

Talking to Mirror

I looked in the mirror and say to myself, Can it be you once played Romeo? Bela Lugosi

Suddenly you spend more time on grooming yourself, and the neck is just an extra splash of the expensive perfume. You do everything to seem more attractive. You spend half of your earnings on your looks. Be it clothes or your hairstyle, you suddenly will be more concerned about your outward appearance. Buying extra looks might not be something that people around you know you for, but just a thought of a meeting with that special person will force you to shift your priorities. Men feel drawn to feminine women. It makes them namely to feel more masculine. And subconsciously if you are a female, you, therefore, want to make you more female than for Prince Charming. Same is the case with men.

Love Songs on Repeat

Once you have heartaches or feel sad single, the love songs tucked far away. But, now you cannot help, but recite all the great love hymns. Jagjit Singh, Sonu Nigam, Shreya Ghoshal, Arijit, Akon, Bryan Adams, Celine Dion, Shania Twain, Bon Jovi or Enrique Iglesias,  can say what they want. Men are as fantastic! When the butterflies flapping around in the stomach, it is great to hear others verbalize the same feelings that you have. You want to surround yourself with people who are just as mad in love as you are.

24 x 7 ! I Think of You

You wanna know who I’m in love with? Read the first word again

You just cannot get your partner out of your head! That special person will become your first though in the morning, and last thought before you go to bed at night. That someone special will wander around in your thoughts. You just want to be with that dream person all the time. Studies show that being in love in many ways similar to having obsessions. You are so focused on one person, even if you know that it may not be entirely rational to spend all your waking hours thinking about him/her. Abruptly, you will be giving more attention to your lover’s liking or disliking, be it smallest or bigger ones. Now, you don’t want to miss any of those extra brownie points.

I Don’t Care Who Else is Around

All other men, step aside! All other ladies! I am not interested in. None of them can compare with your new lover. You sweetheart is, in fact, nicer, more beautiful and more lovely than any other. Research has shown that when you are in love, you begin automatically vote delicious people of the opposite sex is less attractive than you did before. When you see falling in love with the eyes, you will find only your special someone perfect. A mere mention of your lover’s name cheers you up.

You miss your loved one so much that no matter how busy you are, but every discussion about your lover, grabs your immediate attention. You try to do everything that will make your loved one feel special and happy. For you, the biggest dream of your life will be – staying with your love all the time. Most of the time you will be planning your future with your loved one. After being in love, nothing is going to gross you out; you won’t find doing anything awkward now – not a big deal, anymore. Love is a wonderful emotion and when you are deeply in love with someone, having sex with your lover is the last thing you would ever think of. There are studies that say, people who are in love will disagree with the statement that emphasizes sex as an important part of any relationship. No denial, the best feeling in the world is when the person you like, like you back.

The best feeling in the world is when the person you like, like you back.
